The Hot Chocolate Kids

The Hot Chocolate Kids, a group of students from IC School, raised $5,470.00 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. The “Kids” set up a hot chocolate stand in their neighborhood during the Christmas Holidays. They sold hot chocolate and other goodies to people driving around and viewing their festive neighborhood. They were able to present their hard earned money during a radio marathon for the Make-a-Wish Foundation in April. The group will get to be involved with the granting of a wish to an area child. The average cost of a wish is $5,000.00. The group plans on making this an annual event.
